|View Poll Results: Which Flu vax should I get?|
|Voters: 23. You may not vote on this poll|
I think I would prefer a dishonorable discharge over getting the flu shot by force for my unborn baby....but I know I'm oversimplifying it It's not like you can just tell them you want to leave because you dont want them to inject you with toxins.....right?
Think about the consequences of that. I'm not trying to be a jerk here, but a dishonorable discharge makes it about as easy to get a job as being in jail for 15 years. How will she support her kids if she's dishonorably discharged, has to serve time for dereliction of duty, and can't get a job after getting out of military prison because her record is tarnished with a DD? I mean, that's worst-case scenario, obviously, a little hyperbolic, but I'm sure you understand what I mean. Sometimes we have to make decisions we don't like, for the sake of our livelihood, of the bigger picture.
Nonetheless. This thread wasn't posted, I don't think, so that the OP could get unsolicited advice about why she should disobey orders and refuse the flu shot. She said in her first post that her mind is made up about it. She wants information about whether to choose FluMist or an injection, not off-the-cuff advice about going AWOL to avoid the flu shot. Just IMO.
ETA: We cross-posted, Mykydsmommy. I wasn't taking issue with you directly. I think we should just give the OP what she asked for, instead of telling her to do things she can't do.
Thank you for voting. I appreciate all the votes for "none of the above, get out of the military", but this isn't a perfect world we are living in.
I figure whatever side effects I get from being vaxed pale in comparison to leaving my children with no income and a mother in jail. Then my son would have to switch to formula and that opens up a whole host of other problems.
